Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
Review by Mikesgroover
The Runaway Jim extends nicely and the audience tape I listened to reveals Perazzo pushing thejam. Another excellent 1996 Theme, during an era when it was a setlist stalwart. But it's the second set that really brings the funk.
Timber sets the percussive pace followed by a perfectly clean version of Divided Sky. The Tweezer is "exceptionally funky" as Mr. Dirksen once put it, with a percussive breakdown and a lot of Page. Simply outstanding, and one of the great versions of the year.
The China Cat tease that occcurs right before they kick into the Possum is quietly played, but very distinctive and great to hear.
Tune in for the Tweezer, it's worth the ticket.
